Posted - Oct 13 2016 : 11:09:17 AM For years I have been making my own lotions, balms, teas, and other such things. I blame the Foxfire books I used to read at my grandmother's house as a child. I was instilled with an interest in folk/herbal healing early on. I was always too nervous to sell any of them though. I would give them away and people loved what I made but, gosh. I am sure you know how hard it is to put your work out there!
I have run an online crochet/knitting store for years but really fell out of love with the process (I enjoy it as a hobby but not a job) but I think doing that gave me the knowledge of how to run an online store- something I would have never known if I didn't do it!
So, after a year or two of wanting to run my own online store and being too scared to, I am finally taking the plunge and opening Copper Moon Apothecary in November! I will be starting off selling my handmade and natural lotions, balms, facial steams and masks and I may branch out after that into teas (I still need to read up on the new FDA laws about that!). I have friends who have allergies to corn, nuts, and gluten so I am going to make a small line that is made without any those and in their own separate area (so as to not cross-contaminate). Besides writing, this is the other thing I am very passionate about in my life- affordable, handmade, natural healing.
I just got my mock-up logo and I wanted to share because I am just so darn proud of myself for doing this! xoxo
